We were literally spoiled with all the intel being leaked on Glee’s third season last week! This week, however, we were starting to fret that we would languish without anything else until the season premiere on September 20. Fortunately, that all changed last night when The Hollywood Reporter spoke with some of the Glee cast at Fox’s Eco-Casino Party.

Just as they were in the Season 2 finale, Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) are still hell-bent on returning to New York when they graduate. To that end, Rachel will put all of her energy toward competing for the female lead in McKinley’s school musical.

“Rachel is vying for the lead in the school musical and she has a little competition with Mercedes (Amber Riley),” Michele revealed at the event.

Everyone is remaining mum on what the show actually is, but according to rumors circulating in the Tumblr-sphere, it may be West Side Story, since the show features one female lead and one male lead.

Finn (Cory Monteith), Kurt, and Blaine (Darren Criss) are all vying for the male role — with the play’s directors Emma (Jayma Mays), Artie (Kevin McHale), and Coach Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones) ultimately deciding whom they will cast.

Apparently, Kurt will do whatever it takes to win! “It wouldn’t be Kurt without a big huge musical number that includes dangerous effects,” Colfer told the rag. “He definitely tries his hardest to persuade them that he can be this role.”

That’s fine and dandy, but we’re still stuck on the fact that Blaine is auditioning!? Sounds like a pretty clear indication that he’ll transfer sooner rather than later.
